MIAMI — A tropical depression has formed off Africa and is moving west.

A tropical storm warning has been issued for several of the southern Cape Verde Islands.

The center of the depression was located about 160 miles (260 km) southeast of the Praia, Cape Verde Islands, late Sunday. Its maximum winds were 35 mph (55 kph), and forecasters said the system could become a tropical storm on Monday.

Its center was expected to stay south of the Cape Verde Islands.
